The winner of a bumper and a maiden hurdle at Ffos Las on his first two starts; upped to Grade 1 company at Sandown ten weeks ago when he was a very creditable second to Tahmuras in the Tolworth, fourth jumping the last but sticking on well; ready for today's extra yardage and he should be hard to beat in this less-demanding company.
